camp, the "something new" and a coupon!

Yesterday was one of those days where you wake up and the next thing you know it's time for bed! A total blur. Anyone else have days like that?

Sunday we dropped the boys off at our church's camp for a few days...



It has been so quiet around here! I miss them (alot!) but I'm sure they are having a blast.

Tessa is really enjoying their absence :)

We pick them up tomorrow and I'm anxious to hear how it went. This is the first overnight camp for all of us, and I thought for sure we would get a call to come pick up one of them by now :)

So the something new for The Vintage Pearl...

if you have read my blog over the years you know that I LOVE fabric.

But I don't sew.

Or have the time to really learn.

But my amazingly talented sister-in-law does sew.

And she is helping us launch...


a fabric line!!!

More about that later :)

(ps... if you have something you would like to see included in our line drop us an email!)

We are working extra hard in the studio these days- we have had a surge in orders for our little business and our trying our best to keep up! As we grow so does our wait time, but only for a brief time. Our normal 2-3 weeks is running closer to 3-4 weeks, but please know that we are trying our best to get caught up and get the wait time back to normal while also giving careful attention to each order.


(square and circle layers necklace)

We plan on being caught up very soon.

To say THANK YOU for your patience...

use code TUESDAY for 15% off your order!

Expires at midnight tonight.

There are some days the day goes by so fast and other times it just won't end! How fun for the boys! I am sending my two kiddos to the grandparents and aunts and uncles for a week and a half. I think I am more excited than they are. I'm sure the silence will be weird but good for all of us! Hope your boys had a blast!

so thankful that your business is successful; praise God! will the Fathers' Day orders be filled in time for Fathers' Day (if they were placed before your deadline)? Hope so!

Kelly said...

Hmmm, my husband's cousin just had a baby they named Ryker. I can't help but wonder if someone ordered that to give it to the same mama?
